Insurance-Greed-31Despite the World Health Organization predicting a 70% increase in cancer cases worldwide over the next 20 years, there remains no cure or vaccine. One man from North Carolina, disgusted by the lack of progress and with his own father dying from pancreatic cancer, angrily embarks upon a personal crusade to find a cure before it’s too late. In the face of personal tragedy, he defies the odds and stumbles upon a cure that could change the course of history, only to find the real battle has just begun.

“If you stumbled upon a cure for cancer,
would you throw it away?”

 

LogoA Questionable Cure is a newly released fact-based fiction novel about a man who finds a cure for cancer – and then throws it away. It’s disturbing and funny, informative and entertaining, heartbreaking, surprising, and sobering. In his debut novel, Roger Gerald Scott calls into question much of what many of us might like to believe about the people we are and the society we live in.

“Shines a light into true facts about cancer, research, the medical profession, and the pharmaceutical industry, which is funding research for its cure – but also profiting from its existence.”

A Questionable Cure  was released worldwide on March 11th

Available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle

“…refreshingly original, written with authenticity, and with bewildering revelations around every bend. Not to mention the impressive handling of American terminology and detail from Scott, who is a Brit living in Norway.”

  1. uhm, seriously: if you add the tag “cancer” to your post, your post shows up right in between medical cancer news and cancer blogs. maybe, seeing that this is deadly serious topic, it might make sense to point out in the first line of your blog post that this is about a novel that plays with the “big conspiracy theory”, as if there was no doctors and scientists out there who spent their life for research, and as if there was one cure for all the different cancers… Just saying… (as i am waiting for the next chemo…)

    • I’m sorry you found the post offensive. I only ask that you consider perhaps your reaction was influenced by more than just this post, and not really fair to the poster or the book it is about. You are not alone. I was widowed when my husband died of pancreatic cancer and I was only 36 years old, lost both parents to brain cancer and breast cancer in the last 3 years, and am personally struggling with my own battle. If it’s not offensive to me to share this post, I have to believe it won’t be offensive to every single other person who similarly struggles with having been touched personally by cancer–though, certainly in a society with such variety in personalities and situations, there will be those who do not find it interesting, or as you did, find it offensive. My blog is for the masses…I can’t guarantee 100% of its readers will be 100% happy 100% of the time.

      This book is not about the “big conspiracy theory” as you stated. It is a very insightful story and as the reviewer said, “Scott chose fiction as his means to bring this dialogue to the masses – the masses which are actually suffering, and losing loved ones to cancers every day. Jargon and bureaucratic systems often stand in the way of lay people who so desperately want to access and understand medicine. Scott makes use of a naïve Bob Johnson as an instrument to justify oversimplifying the complexity of cancer, providing readers with a rare peek into the nuts and bolts of what’s actually going on, in many cases, and challenging the way we think about it all.”

      The keyword was chosen because this book has been very well received among the community of people who are fighting or supporting someone who is fighting cancer for many reasons and that keyword helps the book continue to reach them. I’m sorry it came up in a search result at a point when you weren’t ready to see this particular post, but your search keyword is going to show you a lot of results and many of them won’t be what you are looking for. I know…I have been spending enough time looking for help using that very same keyword beginning in February of 2008 and relentlessly so ever since. I wish you all the best in your fight…you are not alone.

  2. I’m sorry to hear about your and your partner’s and family’s struggle with cancer. And yes, maybe the first lines of the blog post felt misleading for me, so thanks for clarifying. I just looked for a preview of the book, to get a better idea of it directly from the writing. all the best for you.
